The mango, palm heart salad was not well washed if at all, and the dressing was nothing to write home about. Just overall not well seasoned.

Service was excellent- attentive but not overbearing. Creme brûlée was prepared in an edible pastry shell surrounded by fresh fruit. Beautifully done and light. The signature appetizer of layered avocado & lump crabmeat topped with a grilled shrimp with a hint of cilantro/lime was delicious. Would absolutely return.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were late for our reservations,We were late for our reservations, but they found us a nice table for two after a wait of 20 minutes.
